520    The U.S. Exploring Expedition of 1838-1842 was one of the 
       most ambitious undertakings of the nineteenth century and 
       one of the largest voyages of discovery the Western world 
       had ever seen - six magnificent sailing vessels and a crew
       of hundreds that included botanists, geologists, mapmakers,
       and biologists, all under the command of the young, brash 
       Lieutenant Charles Wilkes. Their goal was to cover the 
       Pacific Ocean, top to bottom, and to plant the American 
       flag around the world. Four years after embarking, they 
       returned to the United States having accomplished this and
       much more. They discovered a new southern continent, which
       Wilkes would name Antarctica. They were the first 
       Americans to survey the treacherous Columbia River, the 
       first to chart dozens of newly discovered islands all 
       across the Pacific. They explored volcanoes in Hawaii, 
       confirmed Charles Darwin's theory of the formation of 
       coral atoll, and collected thousands of specimens that 
       eventually became the foundation of the Smithsonian's 
       scientific collections..
